  1. I have had the same problem lately occasionally not starting but finally cranking and the other day it wouldn’t come right so I put it in gear and rocked it and when I tried it it started. I think rocking it just rotated the starter a little to get away from the dead spot. I remember doing this as a teenager a million years ago.....does his mean I need a new starter?
  2. So just a thought about the next meeting. There was some talk about organising it around the Noosa car show so was thinking of maybe an early morning meet up at Landsborough and heading to Montville via some back roads where we can grab coffee etc and then those wanting to go to Noosa can head up there. There are a few decent hills so I may bring the 911 in case some of the 944's need a push up them.
  3. I was thinking of bringing the 911 to try and educate you lot ?? but maybe I had better have a rethink
  4. Never been to the Hinze dam is there an obvious meeting spot, looking on maps there appears to be a car park next to the dam but not sure if there's any coffee etc there
  5. Is the Hinze dam meet up still on next Saturday and if so what is the agenda, I'll will be there if we get a few cars along
  6. Yeah I looked at your username after I posted and thought what an idiot. Sounds like an idea maybe next weekend and Coastr is not far from you as well
  7. I'm in the Mooloolaba area Brian we're are you based
  8. I will make the effort to bring the old 928 along to the August meet
  9. Injection Labs in the USA Scott they came highly recommended through rennlist Kevin is the man you want. cant really be sure Bruce but my gut feeling is the MAF because it was so far out of calibration
  10. I have just got my car on the road after sending off my MAF to the US for a rebuild My car an 84 928 was running ok but idled a bit low sometimes cutting out and got around 21 l/100k on my last trip cruising around 100k i just got back from a trip to the Gold Coast driving just the same and I was pretty impressed that I got just over 11 l/100k, the car idles nicely and generally runs a lot nicer. I thought my fuel gauge was stuck. it wasn't cheap at around $600 oz all up but it will pay itself off in no time. When they checked it it measured at 100 and the service limit was 40. I don't know what the numbers mean but it was obviously way out so if you have similar issues it might be worth getting yours checked
  11. I just used normal fuel injection hose with clamps, more as a stop gap because the existing lines were pretty bad until I decide on the best way to do it as it only takes a couple of hours. I didn't do up the clamps to tightly. i think I will go the same way as Bear924 so if there is any more info on that it would be appreciated
  12. Have an update. Yes Bruce the cleaner worked, after cleaning the 8 injectors the water was dark brown so they were pretty grubby. I then ran them through another cycle to be sure and the installed them but the car wouldn't even look like starting so I went through the process of checking everything else like ignition, gas and signal to injectors and everything was fine. I then thought I had stuffed the injectors hence this post. I decided on one last attempt and pulled them out tonight and made up a jig for squirting carb cleaner through them while pulsing them with a 9 volt battery. Initially some of them were not even opening but with patience I got them all working perfectly with nice spray patterns, put them back in and all good now so don't need new ones luckily. I think that the ultrasonic cleaner loosened a lot of gunk that perhaps ended up getting caught up further inside so I think you perhaps need to make up something so they are working while being cleaned if that makes sense With the recalibrated MAF and the now really clean injectors the car is running the best it ever has for me, it was so nice to drive tonight I ended up down at the glass house mountains on my test drive. Weird thing ever since doing the MAF the auto changes so much better, it used to be a pain to get it into high at 100k but now it just changes effortlessly, can't explain that but it's true
  13. I think I need to replace my fuel injectors so looking for recommendations, they are the type that has a barb and rubber hose I found some on ebay - Airtex 10-8008 only $20 plus shipping from the US, sounds too cheap to me
  14. No I didn't go to Noosa Brian. Will catch you in the weekend
